America's largest family-owned new and used book retailer, Half Price Books, is looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to work in our fun, fast-paced retail environment to fill the position of Temporary Bookseller.

Every day, Booksellers get to work on a variety of tasks, including delivering quality customer service, sharing their knowledge about books, movies, and music with customers and co-workers, operating the cash register, shelving new merchandise, and buying books from the public. Each day can be unique and filled with surprises! We're looking for people who have strong communication skills and a positive attitude. Ideal candidates are dependable, hard-working and independently-motivated.

In addition to the pleasure of working at a great place with great people--and getting paid for it--you'll receive perks such as reliable hours/shifts and an employee discount on almost all of the already low-priced merchandise available in Half Price Books stores.

Half Price Books is a place for people who are interested in preserving, recycling and passing along information and entertainment in every form. We buy and sell books, records, CDs, collectibles, magazines, videos, DVDs and games.
